PROJECT PROPOSAL FROM CHILD AND WORLD AGAPE OUTREACH(CWAO)
NAME OF PROJECT : SPONSORSHIP FOR ORPHANS
COUNTRY : UGANDA
HEAD OFFICE : KAMPALA OFFICE
ABOUT CWAO :
It is in the heart of God to raise orphans and destitute children and we the founder members of CWAO are privileged to be involved in this humble task .
We know that it is a task we could never accomplish without the helping hand of friends like you .
We indeed pray that you will be encouraged to partner with us to give these children the future they deserve .
CWAO is a non-Governmental ,Independent ,Charity Christian Organisation registered in Uganda since 1993.
The organization is non-denominational and has no formal relationship with any one Church but seeks to interact with all churches as well as bodies and individuals who share the same vision .
We help children regardless of race ,religion or sex especially in the areas of providing education ,medical care and subsistence to the needy children .
CWAO provides spiritual guidance and counseling through holiday camps and seminars organized to teach them the word of God ,life skill and values based on Biblical principles.
At present CWAO is running a sponsorship program and has plans of building a School on the 60 Acre piece of land Cwao already owns.
The School will primarily cater for the orphans and needy children and will also benefit the local community and elsewhere.
The land is also to be used for commercial projects such as farming ,in both crop and animal husbandry .
To day ,orphans remain a burden of extended families although most of these are living from hand to mouth and many of them are victims of AIDS themselves .
In a situation like that, these families who can hardly take care of their own children ,naturally find it almost impossible to take in an extra child .
As more family members succumb to Aids ,the problem becomes even more complex .In fact ,this scenario has been played out over and over again , so that to day we have another unique orphan problem: households headed and managed by children themselves because all grownup relatives have perished .
PROJECT IDEA /OBJECTIVES .
The mission of CWAO is to bring up orphaned and needy children by finding ways and means of meeting their spiritual ,physical and social needs and reaching out to all the children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ .
The end result is to raise reliable responsible ,resourceful and productive citizens through providing and facilitating the education,instruction ,training and equipping with skills to the children in a Christian set up.
The objective will be achieved by using various means and ways of reaching out to these children .
Teaching ,counseling and upbringing of children to make them responsible and productive citizens of Uganda .
Providing and facilitating the education and training of these children in order to equip them with life skills.
Establishing foster homes for those children who are homeless ,currently we have been forced to rent out homes for these children during holiday time as they have nowhere else to go .
To provide / facilitate health care for the orphans .
By establishing projects and activities that generate income for the BENEFITS FROM THE SPONSORSHIP FOR THE CHILD
Sponsorship for School fees and other educational requirements .
Medical care .
The number of orphans in Uganda stands at approx. two (2) million out of a total of about 9 million children of ages 0-12 years,and an over all population of 22 million . This buy any standards is a formidable number for even healthy economies to handle .In the case of Uganda ,the economy has been devastated by past wars and political instability,both at national and household level.
The orphan problem is still on going owing to the prevalence of aids and pockets of instability in some areas of the country and it poses a real danger to the development of this country .
Children who miss opportunities for improving themselves today ,will be a big burden to society and of no use to themselves in future .
The problem calls for every compassionate heart to give a helping hand .
In 1992 , a group of women got together to find ways and means to help alleviate the suffering of orphans and to offer support to families which had taken on these children .
That is when CHILD AND WORLD AGAPE OUTREACH WAS BORN (CWAO)was born , a Christian non-Governmental organization .
To date (400) orphans of all ages and religious backgrounds have passed through the caring hands of CWAO and we have had the privilege of having two of our children at University .
Our hearts' desire is that by the year 2005 ,Cwao would have had solicited sponsorship for 2000 orphans and would have managed to send many through vocational Schools and colleges.
